Monopoly is a fantastic game for adults and kids alike. But which is the best Monopoly version for adults? There are over 1000 official Monopoly editions, as well as lots more unofficial Monopoly versions to choose from.

In this guide to the best Monopoly versions for adults, we’ve narrowed down the list to the 13 games that you’ll love to play on child-free evenings with friends.

Alternatively, if you have a Classic Monopoly set already, you might want to take a look at these rules for Strip Monopoly!

1. Monopoly for Millennials

A Millennial is someone aged between 25 and 40 in 2021. So by definition, Monopoly for Millennials is the ideal Monopoly game for adults. If you’re over 40 you’ll enjoy this game too, particularly if you like to poke fun at the Millennial generation!

In Monopoly for Millenials, you don’t collect cash, you collect experiences! The tag line of the game is ‘Forget real estate, you can’t afford it anyway’. And Community Chest cards say things like ‘Your free web-streaming trial expires, pay the bank $40’.

Top tokens: Hashtag, Emoji, Camera

Popular spaces: Vegan Bistro, Friend’s Couch, Meditation Retreat

Players: 2 to 4

2. Monopoly Socialism

Monopoly Socialism offers a tongue-in-cheek parody of Classic Monopoly. Unlike the original Monopoly game, which was invented to criticize capitalism, Monopoly Socialism pokes fun at the concept of socialism.

Monopoly Socialism has no properties to buy, instead, there are community projects. While the Community Fund pays for virtually everything, bribery and stealing are common in this game!

This game has caused quite a stir on social media, with historian Nick Kapur’s review going viral on Twitter.

5. The Godfather Monopoly

You’ll be wise to ‘keep your friends close and your enemies closer’ in The Godfather collector’s edition of Monopoly. As you work your way around the board and the most memorable locations from The Godfather movie trilogy, don’t forget to ‘make them an offer they can’t refuse’.

8. Sexopoly

Sexopoly is an unofficial adult Monopoly game which is to be enjoyed with your partner or a group of ‘very good friends.’ In this hilariously racy game, players reveal raucous facts about themselves.

9. Wine-Opoly

Whether you’re a wine connoisseur or just like to get sloshed on cheap plonk, this unofficial wine-themed Monopoly game is a lot of fun. As well as the traditional game, Wine-opoly also lets you choose a one-hour version for faster play.

As you work your way around the board you’ll learn interesting facts about the wines of the world. As you work your way past the Cellar to the Cheers space, you’ll want to avoid being penalized for things like ‘serving malodorous cheese’.

Top tokens: Wine Glass, Carafe, Grapes

Popular spaces: Beaujolais Nouveau, Chablis, Champagne

Players: 2 to 6

10. Drinkopoly

If Wineopoly seems a bit tame, then perhaps Drinkopoly is more up your street? This unofficial Monopoly-style game is actually a drinking game that ‘guarantees a forgettable experience’!

Aside from the shape of the board, Drinkopoly isn’t very similar at all to real Monopoly. The focus is definitely just on drinking so if you decide to play this game with real shots, be careful! You’ll likely be on the floor before you even make it once around the board.

Top tokens: The tokens in this game are just colors, and you’ll 100% forget which is yours

Popular spaces: Take a Shot, Take a Sip, Bottoms Up

Players: 2 to 6

11. Weed-Opoly

Another adults-only unofficial Monopoly game that isn’t at all that similar to the original is Weed-Opoly. Just like Drinkopoly, players are unlikely to remember the outcome of this hilarious game.

In Weed-Opoly players are given tasks such as performing tongue twisters like “scintillating sativas stuck to Susie’s socks” and answering themed multiple-choice questions. The winner of this fun adults game is pronounced the ‘Head Weedopolist’.

Top tokens: The tokens in this game are just colors, and you’re sure to forget which is yours

Popular spaces: Take a Hit, Free Toke, Busted

Players: 2 to 6

The bottom line

Monopoly is a fun game for adults to play, especially if you try one of the adult Monopoly sets that’s themed around one of your favorite hobbies, interests, or movies.

Some adults-only Monopoly editions are very similar to Classic Monopoly, with just the names of things changed. Others, however, are completely different and will have you stipping, taking shots, and laughing harder than you’ve ever laughed during a board game!
